Poems for Grandma, Step-Mom, Aunts
Sentiments about step-mothers, aunts and grandmothers...it's all about the love you share.
"My mom has a good way
engaging me in a conversation about the choices I
listening, being objective and open-minded,
respecting those choices so long as they don't put me in danger."
- Casey Affleck
69. Love Has Never Been About the Genes - Nicholas Gordon
For the mythically perfect stepmom.
Love has never been about the genes,
But about beauty, and unforgiving grace.
The wolf that suckled Romulus and Remus
Had nothing in her heart but wrenching joy.
70. Star Mother-in-Law - Joanna Fuchs
For the mom-in-law that just can't be beat.
Some mother-in-laws are possessive;
Their child they still want to own.
My mother-in-law's love is like sunlight;
On both of us it shone.
71. The Day I Wed Your Son – Anonymous
Appreciating your husband's mom for raising such a great man.
To the other Mother I received
The day I wed your son
And I'd really like to thank you
For the loving things you've done
You've given me a gracious man
With whom to share my life
You're his lovely Mother
I'm his lucky wife
This card comes from both of us
he says he couldn't love you more
And I say thank you Mum
You're a terrific Mother-in-Law.
72. I Call You "Ma" - Nicholas Gordon
For the second mom that treated you like blood.
I call you "Ma," though you are not my mother,
But more a ma than any ma could be.
I've come to love you more than any other;
You took me in your charge and set me free.
You let me run and kissed me when I fell;
You kept your eyes on me and let me stray.
73. Wonderful Grandma - Joanna Fuchs
Showing grandma some love for all that she has done for you.
Grandma, you're so wonderful,
On Mother's Day I think of you,
The unconditional love you give
The sweet and generous things you do.
74. And Grandma's Too – Anonymous
Giving grandma some recognition for raising your mom so she could teach you the ways of living.
While we honor all our mothers
with words of love and praise.
While we tell about their goodness
and their kind and loving ways.
We should also think of Grandma,
she's a mother too, you see....
For she mothered my dear mother
as my mother mothers me.
75. Aunt mother's day poem - Joanna Fuchs
She was like a mom to you, so why not honor your aunt too?
Dear Aunt, I wish I could express
All the things you mean to me;
Your love and support have helped so much;
I hope I can make you see'
